This month’s featured maker is Dr Pachanga

“We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest maker to join the Ithemba family... Dr Pachanga. To own a Dr Pachanga custom-made handbag is to own a slice of African joy – just ask the beautifully dressed fashionistas who can’t be seen in public without their piece. Dr Pachanga, AKA ‘The Last King of Congo’, is a force of nature and his ability to marry on-trend styles with traditional African fabrics to create his unique bags, intricate tailored garments and even homeware is legendary. We are thrilled to be able to share some of his creativity and happy-making bags (no two are the same) with a greater audience – they are guaranteed conversation starters and epitomize the spirit of African design we love and admire so much.
